Re: Roger’s Records To Stand Test Of Time - Do MTF stats people agree/disagree?

Lol. It's just that I wonder how someone cannot appreciate Federer. It really baffles me that people put him down so much. It's the only explanation I can come up with, although even that's tenuous...

Re: Roger’s Records To Stand Test Of Time - Do MTF stats people agree/disagree?

Certainly true. It's just that Ivanisevic is always used as a character to bolster the 'nineties was a strong era' argument. I wonder if these people watched tennis in the nineties - he was...

Re: Roger’s Records To Stand Test Of Time - Do MTF stats people agree/disagree?

You've hit the nail on the head.

One that always stands out for me is Ivanisevic. It boggles my mind the way his legacy has increased every year since his retirement. Not to mention the fact that...

Re: Roger’s Records To Stand Test Of Time - Do MTF stats people agree/disagree?

I'd just like to point out that half of Sampras' slams were won from 1996 to 2002. Look at the seedings for the tournaments that he won in that period. People talk about it like he played in a tough...

Re: All-time Open Era Grand Slam wins

He doesn't even need to do that. He could 'just' get to the final of the remaining majors this year, and then to the quarters of all four next year. That'd equal Connors' 233 at the US Open in...

Re: Roger’s Records To Stand Test Of Time - Do MTF stats people agree/disagree?

Haha absolutely (as Mats Wilander would say)



Yeah, surely time isn't infinite. What's more likely, is that time as we know it is finite (i.e. as part of the space-time contiuum). At the...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Yeah, I guess I don't have a definite answer to it.

And I thought that when I was writing - they probably don't care too much about those players, I was just speculating.

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

I didn't want to debate it, I wanted to mention it, as I've never seen a post about it. To the contrary, the way people talk sometimes, it seems like people don't realise it.

Just wanted to make the...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Ok. Even though we drifted far away from the topic of this thread because of your input. I wanted to talk about footwork, and you've insisted on talking about game styles throughout. Rather than...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

The racquet technology point is spot on. And I agree with the rest of this - it's actually my view on the matter. And yes, I myself have played baseline tennis on 'lightening fast' courts - so I know...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Interesting. So you think the surfaces changed and then the styles changed? Why do you think they did that?

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

I don't really understand why your responses are laced with malice. Can't we just have a nice discussion? My arguments are based on playing and watching. I'm trying to understand your point of view,...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Don't worry, I've been reading these forums for a while, so I know who to 'try lines on' ;)

Well, there are two sides to the argument. Did the surfaces change first, thus causing a baseline style of...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

For me, that simplistic, but fair enough. No surprise that you didn't answer my question about which surfaces you play on. Oh well, we have differing opinions, that's fine. :)

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Lol I wasn't asking you if you'd played on all surfaces! If I had been I would have quoted you.

Interesting. Well in that case I'd be interested in your view, which came first?

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Haha this isn't something that's easy to explain with words. If you can't see the difference then this is a lost cause! Watch his feet.

Out of interest, do you play tennis? And if so, have you...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Oh right, just re-read it again, and realised that you meant the sentence starting with 'what'?

If that was the question, then it's a good one. What came first, the trend for baseline play, or the...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

This is personal preference (and incidentally not what the thread was about to begin with) - I happen to like the state of the surfaces today. I think this has a lot to do with the fact that when I...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

It was indeed a win for him, that's true. I should point out, though, that Lopez's best result at Wimbledon was in the same year as Safin's best result (2008), so I'm not sure how you can argue that...

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Haha he wasn't talking shit. But they could have slowed it down to walking pace, and he still would never have won on grass - those funny bounces did not sit well with someone of his disposition!

Re: The differences between the court surfaces

Totally true. I think people have short memories - do they not remember the outcry after that Sampras Ivanisevic Wimbledon final? The one that Sampras won in straights with a couple of tiebreaks....
